IP-Based Products Enable Communication Between Third-Party Devices

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - Sept. 9, 2004 - Control4, the leader in IP -based home control and entertainment systems, today introduced its Vendor Partner Program at the 2004 CEDIA Expo. The Control4 Vendor Partner Program is designed to support third -party manufacturers of consumer electronic devices. Participating vendors will team with Control4 to create plug -n -play drivers for their products. The third -party devices will then be used to communicate in an IP environment and seamlessly interface with Control4 automation systems.

"Control4 not only enables intercommunication between multiple devices from third -party vendors, but also allows non -IP devices to interact with its systems," said Jim Gist, Director of Business Development, Control4. "We are pleased to introduce our Vendor Partner Program with such a distinguished list of founding partners."

Control4's Vendor Partner Program will offer two levels of participation; Level 1 - C4C™, Control4 Certified - partners will supply Control4's Integrated Systems Department their protocol and Control4 will create the plug -n -play drivers. Level 2 - C4D™, Control4 Designed - Control4 will work with partners to incorporate C4IQ™, embedded control platform software, into their products.

Control4 is working with the following vendors to launch the program: Apex, D -Tools, Denon, Escient, Infocus, Integra (CI division of Onkyo), JVC, Kaleidescape, Kenwood, Litetouch, Lutron, Mitsubishi, Orbit Irrigation, Panamax, Pentair Pool Products, ReQuest Multimedia, Russound, Sharp, Solar Shading Systems, Somfy, Sony, Vantage, VisionArt and XM Radio.
